Biscuits!

If you’re ever wondered what a 500-degree oven is for, it’s for cooking these little beauts: I haven’t made ‘em since…  oh gosh, probably since my previous life as a Victorian housewife.  But I made ‘em this morning.  The recipe I use (this time around anyway) derives from “Harriet’s Southern Biscuits” out of Jeff Smith’s [...]

Somen Salad… sort of

It’s spring, and therefore, time again for salads. I once had a salad like this at a potluck– I took the recipe from Just Jenn, but I made several changes to it, some on purpose, and some because I didn’t have the right ingredients and had to substitute. I made it like a mashup between [...]

Snickerdoodles

Being the cookie junkie that I am, I can’t believe that this is the first post about cookies that I’ve written for this blog. Well, better late than never. I am asked to make this cookie every year around the holidays. This is Lipby’s favorite. I love anything with cinnamon in it, so it’s one [...]

I could have sworn I already posted this here, but I’m probably thinking of my previous blog…  In any event, Great-Grandmother Charity died a couple of decades ago, and lived to a ripe old age before she did, so the provenance of this recipe could easily be over 100 years old.  It is the heirloom [...]

Three Sisters Stew

Fall is here, and for me, that means soups and stews. This is a hearty stew from the Moosewood Restaurant Soups and Stews Deck. According to the recipe, the “three sisters” refers to a Native American myth by which three sisters are transformed into corn, beans, and squash to feed a tribe. I do love [...]

Dragonia’s Macaroni & Cheese

I’ve been hearing about this recipe for years now, so it was a delight to finally get to try it from the source. It is intended to be a low carb recipe- its author maintains a low-carb regimen- but now that I’ve published it here, there is apparently some contention over whether or not that [...]

English Muffins

[updated 8/8/2010: edited, and now with photos!] It took me a while to actually follow through on the comment from this post, but I finally made my own English muffins. The dough for English muffins is softer and stickier than your usual bread dough. During the second rise, you form the muffins and let it [...]

Orange-Almond Polenta Cake

This is a delightfully light and fluffy cake with the pleasant taste of oranges and a hint of almonds. It’s also super-easy to make. I am slightly disappointed that it doesn’t have the consistency of baked polenta– it has more of a cornbread consistency, but lighter. I’m sure I could tweak the recipe to make [...]

I’ve been on a Korean cuisine kick lately. I think it has a lot to do with living near an HMart– we’ve been buying lots of ingredients to make Korean recipes, with delicious success. It also helps that the salespeople often offer free samples while shopping so that you can try before you buy. I [...]

This recipe was passed along to me by my sweetie Dragonia.  It’s definitely not the sort of thing Jack and I usually eat around the House of Cards, but I was intrigued by the use of nutmeg in conjunction with bruschetta-like ingredients, and it made for a nice change-up.  Depending on your own culinary history, [...]
